Prayer: Our Father, you who have confounded the wisdom of men in orchestrating your great plan of redemption, we come to you today to plead for the salvation of souls. We know that your Word makes it clear that salvation belongs to you. You are the only one who can convince and convert the hard hearts of rebellious people. We, too, once walked according to the darkness of our minds. Yet, you saved us while we were darkened in our understanding. Therefore, we ask that you would be pleased to redeem those in our lives. We plead with for our lost family members and friends. You have told us that you delight in the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, our Father, please do what we cannot do. Grant our loved ones a new heart and new mind. We pray these things in the name of the Redeemer, our Lord, and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
